Plastic Not So Sexy

Bisphenol-A (BPA) is causing health concerns. It's an ingredient in many plastics and is found in polycarbonated plastics in baby bottles, plastic containers, the lining of tin cans used for food and beverages, spectacle lenses, CDs, DVDs and a range of household electronic goods. In the body, it acts like a hormone and is being linked to a range of illnesses. A study of male workers from factories where BPA was made or used, sought to see if they suffered any sexual problems compared with workers from factories where there was no BPA used. BPA- exposed workers were 4x more likely to experience reduced sexual desire, >4x more likely to experience erection difficulty & >7x more likely to experience ejaculation problems. It seems that plastic is not so sexy after all...
